Description

This climb is somewhat atypical for Bon Echo because there's no routefinding skills required.  Simply locate the clean cut dihedral and climb it!

P1: (5.9+) Scramble up easy terrain and clip a bolt before pulling over a roof.  Another 10 meters of moderate, but slightly runout climbing puts you on a ledge below the obvious corner.  There is no pro for a ways leading up to this ledge, so make sure your gear here is solid.  Fire the obvious crux using a less than obvious sequence to gain good holds in the crack above you.  After finishing the corner, continue scrambling up nice cracks and blocks on easier terrain for 10 meters and belay at a stance atop a block.

P2: (4th) Downclimb off the other side of the block and continue up and left to the top of the cliff.

Location

To find the start, walk left for 20-30 m from Knob Hill.  The route ascends a clean dihedral, which is directly below a blank face.  A bolt 5 meters off the ground marks the start.

To descend, take the "easy way down."  In other words, follow small trails climbers left from the top of the route, always following the leftmost path.  The trails are faint at times, but as you pass a bluff and start to lose elevation, the trail will become well defined.  At one point, you will scramble down a steep slab for 10 meters.  A short jaunt will bring you back to your packs.

Protection

Standard rack including small nuts and a black alien (or equivalent) for the crux and a #4 camalot for the belay.
